salty and windy, the air

oh, ah

darling forgive me, I care

oh, ah

If you want to go ( I don’t blame you )

lady let me know ( I won’t chase you )

our lovely fading show

talking and listening, I’m there

ah, ah

holding a feeling, somewhere

ah, ah


there above the nimbus clouds

it will be just you and me, dancing across the rainbows

an emerald colored dragonfly floating by,

the june summer air bleeding warmth into our veins,

in the moment of envy,

the flower petal shows it’s true colors

unfolding into a kalediscope of love

the sky filled with salt and water, a never ending typhoon holding us together

and in the center, we’ll be torn apart and transformed into something that once was, or maybe always has been

until then I’ll see you in the morning, when the butterflies and song birds sing the same song they have since now.

dreamy and wonderful guitar and synth lines. reminds me of steve lacy or rex orange county

I like the easygoing mood at the beginning and the authentic sound design. Getting serious 70s vibes from this. The vocals are nice, and the lyrics themselves are cool too. The mix gets a tad strained at some of the busier sections, notably at the airy bridge at 2:20. I liked the dreamy bridge at 2:40, though, and the spoken bit towards the end was a nice thematic touch, even if it dragged on for a bit too long imo. It might've been nice to have a final refrain at the end, or at least more of a gradual outro, as the current ending seems a bit abrupt. Still, you nailed the sound design and atmosphere of this piece, and my complaints with the composition are only minor. Keep at it, Gald! Sorry again for the confusion in the thread - I totally blame myself.
